Guys, what region can take me from one airport to another above 250nm
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the longest route I think you can do is in Hawaii - Dillingham (PHDH) to Kaalaiki (HI25). Takes about 2 hours in a Cessna 172.
PS watch out for the Volcano on approach to Kaalaiki - it’s quite tall.
Here am talking Boeing 777-300er
Flying at 25000ft with 450 knots will get there in 30-45 mins
Ive take the Region Amsterdam 8 months ago, fly with B77W Sky Team Air France from KHAF to same KHAF Airport and Ive need 45-50 min. around.
see pls the link ( https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yNdjSUyUWFNQ5wOSB-Ul8sAfkV3dAyc5aQ/view )
Guys, he is not talking about which takes the longest or shortest time. Just the longest distance.
@Temidayo_Ekundayo 450 knots seems awfully fast…
Just do a couple of circuits of any region.
For that height, 450 knots seems ok because, a lot of congested areas requires some aircraft to still cruise at fl250 at cruising speed
At that height, you should be cruising at about Mach .78
For distances over 250nm you have KMKE-KPIA in the Chicago region, KLAX-KSAN if you depart from the runways facing to the east (map point of view) and making a half moon so as to not having to make sharp turns.
Ive make the distance/routes longer for me, thats a example from me.
